The remainder of your day is at leisure to explore Oahu your way.
Day 3 Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort Oahu
Embark on a wonderful journey along Oahu’s famous North Shore. If there is such a thing as a perfect wave, you’ll likely find it here. The large waves of this legendary surf mecca attract the best surfers. Several television series and movies were filmed in this area. A stop in the surfing town of Haleiwa will surely be a highlight as you learn why surfers gather from all over the world with waves ranging from 2 to 40 feet! Rich with island history, Haleiwa is now the social and artistic hub of the North Shore. Here you will find surfers fueling up at the restaurants in its plantation-era buildings before hitting the famous beaches of Waimea Bay, Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach. Return to Waikiki and enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

A short flight* takes you to the “Garden Isle” of Kauai, the oldest island in the chain. Only here, on the outer islands, can you find the timeless world of ancient Polynesia. Upon arrival, travel to breathtaking Waimea Canyon. Carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods, each of the lines in the canyon walls represent a different volcanic eruption or lava flow. At 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500 feet deep, it is considered the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Later, visit the largest coffee estate in Hawaii and discover the coffee bean’s journey from tree to your morning cup. Learn about sustainability practices and taste several of their coffees.
